MA Digital Narratives
Pedro Lacerda (1988) is a Chilean-Brazilian filmmaker and video artist, who has been working the last two years upon understanding how digitality could help to comprehend and approach filmmaking by means of abstract painting and electroacoustic music. He makes films driven by the merge of these fields in order to evoke abstract sensations, and therefore to manifest an aesthetical response into the viewer. He studied media & communications at the UNIACC University (Santiago de Chile), and in 2013 he was invited to attend the Locarno Summer Academy at the 66th Locarno Film Festival. His works have been screened at the FILE Festival (São Paulo), Santiago International Film Festival (Santiago), Images Festival (Toronto), WRO Media Art Biennale (Wroclaw), NYC Indie Film Festival (New York) and at the Museum of Visual Arts MAVI (Santiago), among others.
